NanoBCA has been committed to promoting the commercialization of products utilizing the science of nanotechnology. We were advocates of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). Our first success was the passage of the legislation to fund the NNI which was signed into law by President George W. Bush in December 2003. Our members were present to witness this historic event. As advocates of the science of nanotechnology, we returned to the White House during the Bush and Obama Administrations. In addition, during the last 20 years members of the NanoBCA have met with the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the House Committee on Science, Space & Technology.

We invite you to join the NanoBCA as an Individual or a Young Professional Member.

INDIVIDUAL MEMBER $250

YOUNG PROFESSIONAL MEMBER $100

One of the NanoBCA member benefits is the opportunity to participate in our monthly webinars. Our monthly webinars address topics involving the relationship between the science of nanotechnology and Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS), US Legislation, Covid-19, Education, Finance, Manufacturing and Foreign Policy.

Become a NanoBCA member and participate in our monthly webinars which discuss how the science of nanotechnology is utilized in the Biotech, Manufacturing, Water, Defense, Chemical and Materials Industries.

We would like to thank all of our loyal members during the past 20 years. We would have not been able to achieve our many successes without your continued participation. THANK YOU! We look forward to continuing these legacy relationships and look forward to welcoming a new generation of NanoBCA members.

 When it comes to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is not messing around. The agency announced on June 10, 2021, three actions intended to protect communities from PFAS:

  • proposing a rule designed to obtain comprehensive data on more than 1,000 PFAS manufactured in the United States;
  • withdrawing guidance that EPA believes weakened its July 2020 significant new use rule (SNUR) restricting certain long-chain PFAS; and
  • publishing a final rule that incorporates three additional PFAS into the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) maintained under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).

More information about these rules is available in our June 11, 2021, memorandum “EPA Announces Three PFAS Actions, Including Proposed TSCA Section 8(a) Reporting Rule.” Comments on these proposed rules are due on or before September 27, 2021.

The proposed rule intended to obtain comprehensive data on PFAS would require all manufacturers (including importers) of PFAS in any year since 2011 to report information related to chemical identity, categories of use, volumes manufactured and processed, byproducts, environmental and health effects, worker exposure, and disposal. As a result of these EPA regulatory actions, companies that never expected to need to know TSCA are now finding themselves in EPA’s crosshairs.

In light of this, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar focused on these issues on September 9, 2021, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (EDT). B&C Managing Partner Lynn L. Bergeson and Director of Chemistry Richard E. Engler, Ph.D., will discuss EPA’s proposed rules and what the regulated community must know and do to comply.

US EPA Emergency Response Research Webinar
COVID-19: Aerosol Treatment Devices & Ozone Disinfection
Thursday, August 12, 2021
1:00-2:00 PM ET

REGISTER HERE (FREE)

Reducing the risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, relies on effective cleaning and disinfection, along with public health strategies like testing and social distancing. Recent studies have indicated that exposure to aerosolized SARS-CoV-2 mass can facilitate the spread of COVID-19. As indoor environments (e.g., schools, businesses, mass transit) continue to repopulate, more attention is being focused on technologies that claim to reduce or eliminate virus transmission via aerosols while operating safely in occupied spaces.

EPA researchers are evaluating the efficacy of different types of aerosol treatment technologies in reducing airborne concentrations using a large-scale test chamber and standardized testing approach. Researchers are establishing protocols for evaluating efficacy of aerosol treatment products to help facilitate cross-technology comparisons.

Additionally, alternative methods that supplement regular cleaning and disinfection are being investigated by EPA researchers. Ozone disinfection has been identified as a potential method for disinfection of surfaces contaminated with SARS-CoV-2. This webinar will discuss results from evaluating the efficacy of such methods and real-world application.

With all the capital seeking to invest or acquire companies, why is it so difficult for some companies to conclude a reasonable deal, or any deal at all?

Andy Clapp will address this topic and present his message on why you should focus on a Transition rather than a Transaction, and the steps that can be taken to successfully raise capital or achieve a liquidity event for you and your shareholders.

Andy’s experience includes GE, Consulting with Arthur D. Little, President of Equifax Research, transatlantic investment banking with Downer & Co., launching and managing 3 funds, and currently advising companies on capital raising and transitioning ownership.  He is a graduate of Clarkson University and Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth.
